    Today's Ride, Boise Foothills

    Took a little ride today in the Boise foothills. Had a pretty good rain yesterday so no dust and cooler temps so all in all awesome day to ride and back home before 1230. Interestingly, my battery consumption seemed really low to me. I ended up riding 37 miles of single track and fire roads...

    Eastern Idaho Rides

    Took a drive over to Mackay in eastern Idaho this past weekend for a Memorial ride. Mackay is a very small (about 450 population) old mining town that is very bike/ATV friendly. ATVs and side by sides are allowed on all streets other than the main highway passing through town. Lots of rocky...

    24 Hour Race Equipment/Logistics/Stratiges Considerations

    Having never been involved in a 24 hour race, I thought a thread on specialized equipment and logistics necessary for a 24 hour race on an Alta, might be beneficial.

    EX Shuts Tail Light Off

    Found out today my 2018 EX’s (#027) tail light isn’t working. Brake light works, but no tail light. Initial thought was no biggie, bad bulb, I will replace it and all is well. Guess what, it is not the bulb. Clean the bulb and socket, which is probably the cheapest socket I have ever seen...

    In the coolant pump not running thread, Mark911 stated, "The water cooling is for the inverter and motor only. The pack is cooled via convection just like our old air cooled bikes". I have no reason to doubt that, but if true and I think it is, then why does the coolant pump run while charging...

    How Far Have You Gone?

    So wondering what kind of range everyone is seeing, or able to get out of their Alta and what techniques you use to help ensure you aren't stranded with a dead battery? I understand that there are a lot of variables in that question, and some of you may not even know, or care, but I thought it...
